Walk 119

Nefyn to Caernarfon 26miles

The rain was falling steadily as I started today's walk, so I decided to take the safe option and road walk most of the journey. The paths have been getting gradually worse as I've made my way up this coast and after yesterday's fall I really didn't want to risk disappearing off a cliff edge, the road runs pretty well parallel with the coast most of the way to Dinas Dinlle. The road journey was quite good as there is a cycle path that runs parallel with the main road for a good part of the trip which is very useful as these were very fast roads. Halfway into today's walk decided to walk down to the beach at Aberdesach and have my lunch (see pic) this a lovely little bay and here you can actually walk the coast path for about ½ mile, you then have to walk back inland to carry on along the road.

 2 miles up the road you finally lose the fast road and take a country lane down to Dinas Dinlle, this seemed a very nice seaside village but like a lot places I've visited this week everything was shut for the winter. The road from Dinas Dinlle takes you up to and past Caenarfon airport along to Morfa Lodge following the river for a while until just after Saron you turn left onto the road that takes you along the coast to Caernarfon. As you round the corner just before Caernarfon the magnificent castle comes into view (see pic) one of the best in the whole UK. A word on Caernarfon.....its a dump....really no other way to describe the place, if it wasn't for the castle I don't think anyone would come!!!!
